Black Beauty Squash

(C. pepo) 48 days. [1957, AAS Winner.] Fruits are dark green, turning black green as fruit matures. Plants are semi-spineless, semi-upright, with an open growth habit. Flesh is white with small seed cavity. Freezes well. Note: Our observations over several seasons indicate that Black Beauty attracts squash bugs much more than other varieties and we have used it successfully as a trap plant for handpicking squash bugs.

Good to start from seed in these months:

North Florida: February-May, August-September
